stator mod speed bump.

Long story short. I was doing the stator mod and when pulling the wire I cut and was not using the covery ripped and fell behind where the stator mounts. it ripped off the piece in the picture below. About a quarter of an inch. I tried dragging a wire to find it for about 3 hours, and put a flashlight everywhere and can't find it. If I leave it in there is it going to cause major problems? Or just grind up and burn away?

Sorry posting on this phone is awful. What I meant to say is when dragging the wire through part of it caught and snagged and ripped off the wire cover posted above. About a quarter inch tore off and fell behind where the stator sits. I tried finding It for some time and couldn't find even a sign of it. If I just finish the stator mod, and leave that in there is it going to cause big problems, or just grind up in the gears and burn away?

Not usually good to have something floating around the inside of a motor...

Your only option is to either just forget it and hope for the best....or tear it apart and find it. A little plastic sleeve...? I'd just forget it and go on....(hoping for the best)
If it was a piece of metal I'd be more concerned.

Thanks Knifemaker! I think I am going to do a little of both. I read somewhere when someone drops something in they sometimes just let it idle for 30 minutes, then change the oil, and oil filter. Not that its cheaper, but I think it should be sufficient. Wouldn't hurt at least right?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say find it asap. I think i dropped a peice of heat shrink in there while replacing my pickup coils, and the stator died about a week later. . . dunno could be coincidence but hell i'm never that lucky.

Well I went out and got an inspection camera and still couldn't find it. I am going to run it for about 100 miles and do an oil change and change the filter and hope for the best. Also got the front forks oil changed and did the seals. Find out tomorrow once I fire it up what happens. Appreciate all the feedback! Doing the rear bearing tomorrow too. And putting on a new r/r.
